Tasting Notes: Red garnet in colour with notes of jammy dark fruit, cherry, licorice, and spice on the nose. Very round on the palate with mellow tannins and a finish dominated by spices, particularly pepper notes, and notes of fresh and preserved purple and red fruits. A fruit-forward sip, it balances pertly on the midpalate. Rich flavors, complex and elegant. Great wine suitable for both early drinking and aging.

 

The Estate: Back in 1587 the peasants of neighboring villages and Rochefort Puzho began to drain the pond, located in Puzho, and a quarter of a century, in 1612, the work was completed. Peasants opened wide valley with excellent fertile land. During the reign of King Henry IV, these lands were divided between the monks of the abbey Cartesians St.Andreas in Villeneuve-les-Avignon and peasants village Puzho. In those days, the Cartesians were representatives of one of the most influential and wealthy Orders and up to 1789 successfully developed a culture of winemaking. After the French Revolution, these lands have been re-distributed among the peasants village of Villeneuve-les-Avignon, Sauveterre and Puzho. In 1929, the winemakers of these municipalities decided to join forces and founded the cooperative, which is now known under the name Cellier des Chartreux. At this point in the cooperative includes 70 winemakers, producing a wide range of wines from the region of the Rhône Valley, which includes as different categories of wine.

The winery employs both traditional and modern winemaking techniques to enhance the quality of their wines. This includes careful vineyard management, hand-harvesting of grapes, and controlled fermentation processes to preserve the natural characteristics of the fruit.
